Local News

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — The West Wind Drive-In movie theater has closed just a day after announcing its reopening.

“We had received formal approval to reopen the Las Vegas Drive-In with certain operating restrictions, and we complied,” the theater wrote in a Facebook post. “Unfortunately, we have recently been asked to temporarily cease operations pending further direction from the Governor’s office. We are disappointed with this decision but look forward to re-opening as soon as possible. Thank you for your patronage and patience.”

Late Wednesday afternoon, the drive-in announced it would reopen under “strict” operating rules. The following are some of those rules.

  • Cars are to be at least 10 feet apart or every other parking space
  • Everyone must stay in their cars at all times
  • Only one person is allowed in a bathroom at a time

The concession stands would remain closed.

The theater is on Carey Avenue near Rancho Drive and general admission tickets are about $8.
